thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Haderslev.
Pours a great, clear, shining golden with a fine, medium, creamy, white head. Very nice looks. Aroma is quite Saison-like, good crispy, biscuity malts, some vanilla, pear, oranges and a slight oaky note. High carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit more subdued than the aroma, some good maltiness, lightly acidic and a fair amount of pleasant, dry hoppiness. Nice surprise.

imdownthepub (10579) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled, 330ml at Kafee du Hopduvel, Ghent. Clouded orange with white head, hard carbonation. Quite strong pear drop aromas which lead to a sharp, acidic and drying beer. Nasal alcohol and reasonable hops, pretty reasonable.

bierkoning (10500) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste. Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!

Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Light yeasty and fruity aroma. Is very bland and boring. Flavour is fruity, light flowery and light grapish. Light yeasty. Thin bodied. Sweetish end. Bland and uninteresting.
